. >> edhenry and jay carney now. >> i didn't say that. i said people who are working on this issue are addressing the kind of question you just raised if that is the case. i think more broadly, we have acknowledged that health dht care.gov has not performed adequately and the president is not happen about that. secretary sebelius is not happy about that and that is why we have dedicated resources to fixing the existing problems and get that site operating in a level that will allow millions of americans to have the kind of user experience they deserve and need to have on line when they are shopping for affordable health insurance and enrolling in affordable health insurance plans. the purpose is not to build a web site. the call in centers and in person centers, it is to provide information to americans about the health care choices available to them. health care choice that were not available proir to the affordable care act. >> the president when he was trying to get the law passed. if you have health insurance you will be able to keep your plan. this morning david a xelrod press
that the u.s. spied on america's allies. at the white house it was still a hot topic. protecty jay carney says president obama assured angela merkel there is not and will not be spying on her. this was the reaction when jay carney was asked about leaders of france and japan. >> i don't have anything more specific about specific alleged operation, or conversations that the president may or may not have had with foreign leaders. >> senator dianne fienstein the chair of the committee says it's not proper for america to spy on the leaders of allied nation. the white house order a review of intelligence gathering. >> i talked with the senior advisor at the in effect today. heather hurlburt told me a lot of the authority that the nsa has was given to the agency after the world trade center bombing. >> shortly after 9/11 we passed a bunch of laws and the american people gave a clear message to congress - which was keep us safe, we are happy if you do what it takes to keep us safe. the routes of many disclosures are in the the patriot act or things that were adopted and allowed to stand after 9/1
've heard from carney briefly today, jay carney here. but the relationship the president has particularly with angela merkel, any kind of deal making? >> it makes it difficult and it certainly would give germany leverage to some degree in some of these discussions because the u.s. is in a position where it was caught doing something it had not previously acknowledged it was doing. how this ultimately plays out is a little difficult. we're still in early days since the revelations and sometimes these things do calm down a little bit. however, as we've seen with the snowden revelations they seem to gain momentum over time. what will be the main challenge for the obama administration is how to sort of restore this trust that germany and some of the other european leaders have talked about because they still do need germany to work with them on lots of key national security and economic issues. >> siobhan gorman, thank you very much. intriguing report. >>> developing as well right now, we're learning that a british man is under arrest in england charged with hacking into u.s. government compu
there you see the white house press secretary jay carney strongly defending the nsa surveilance program. if you read between the lines, he wasn't going to confirm the u.s. has been spying on cellphones of angela merkel, the chancellor of germany or other allied leaders but did repeatedly say and this is a relatively new line, there's a whole new technology of trying to prevent terrorism and the u.s. has a responsibility to protect the american people and he kept saying america's allies. the bottom line is -- it's at least in part designed to help them because the u.s. presumably has a better intelligence capability and maybe they can find out about some sort of loom terrorist plot before the respective governments can. he kept talking about the new technology that is available right now. the u.s. needs to protect the american people and america's allies. he kept saying america's allies over and over again. on the other big subject of the day, the latest problems involving the obama care website. he did read that statement that the department of health and human services just released a
're just talking about 5% of americans. here's how it was explained by jay carney. >> this universe you're talking about here is 5%. that's the whole individual insurance market, 5% of the upon -- of the population. >> that 5% represents 15 million people. the whole obamacare is to get 30 million. and that's the holy grail. secondly, is it just the individual market that is going to lose their policies? >> no. small business plans are being forced under the new regulations to pool their workers with a larger pool of other workers. if they buy in the states regulated by the states, their insurance can go up quite a bit. they can lose their plans. lots of companies are facing this now. >> dr. emanuel, it isn't just small business or the individuals. there are -- forgive me, sir -- there are big companies: time warner, i.b.m., sears, wal-mart, k-mart, wall green are all saying they're going to take their people off their insurance and put them in exchange. those are companies making decisions how they want to insure people -- >> because of the way obamacare works. >> let me finish. before
had an exchange with jay carney at the white house today. let's listen to that. >> did the president mislead the american people when he made that comment repeatedly? >> jim, no, the president was clear about a basic fact. if you had insurance that you liked on the individual market and you wanted to keep that insurance, through 2010, 11, 12, 13, and in perpetuity if you wanted it and it was available you could. you were grandfathered in. what no health care reform could envision or responsibly stipulate is any plan that might come along in the next few years would be grandfathered in because that would undermine the basic premise of providing minimum benefits for the american people. >> andrew what about this? should the president have been clearer and not said so categorically if you like your plan you can keep it? >> of course he should have. it's obviously a small proportion of most americans. you can have all sorts of caveats about this. if you really have a bare bones insurance plan that doesn't meet the standards of the aca you're going have to change it. you're going to have
the boot in favor of hillary clinton? press secretary jay carney weighs in. >> is blinking good enough to identify a killer? it's fascinating and it's a case that co obenshain tried to outlaw. birth control pills. rape or incest. criminals, felons shows, a month law, in bulk. instead of dictating to women, criminals. this ad. >>> we're still monitoring some breaking news out of california where one tsa agent is dead, several others injured after a gunman opened fire at los angeles international airport. the shooting prompted a massive police response and evacuation. that suspect identified as paul ciancia was wounded and is in custody tonight. we'll have a full update at the top of the hour. >>> is the blinking of a paralyzed man who cannot talk enough to send an accused killer to prison? today defense lawyers in prince george's county said no and they're trying to get the judge in this landmark murder case to throw out a video that police made of a remarkable interview done at the bedside of the victim before he died. scott broom is in upper marlboro after a dramatic day in court. >>

spied on its allies, but at the white house was a hot topic. jay carney said president obama assured angela merkel there is not and will not be any spying on her. this was the reaction when he was asked about leaders of france and japan. >> i just don't have anything more specific about specific alleged operations or conversations the president may or may not have had with foreign leaders. >> the freedom act proposes ending bulk collection of records if not directly linked to terrorism, can did he say stein intelligence or suspected foreign agents. >> one major point was made to surveillance policies, saying everybody else is doing it too. they claim some of the information came from nato allies, not u.s. spying. greece has admitted to spying on the u.s. and others in the 1990's at the hearing. james clapper made it clear the u.s. is in good company. >> you believe that the allies have conducted or at any time any type of espionage activity against the united states of america, our intelligence service leaders or otherwise? >> absolutely. >> he said the white house was aware the n.s.
, wrong and irresponsible. stuart: i'm trying to see jay carney respond to this. i don't know if he has a press conference today but i want to see the response. >> the other issue is the administration knew this. they were regulations the obama administration wrote these rules, they knew this was coming. the president has been saying you can keep your plan and they knew that was not true. stuart: when it is a bigger bomb shell than yesterday. thank you very much. the irs scandal, remember that? making its way back into the headlines. new e-mails obtained by judicial watch reveal that lois lerner shared highly confidential tax information on several tea party groups with the federal election commission. that is a violation of federal law. monica crowley here anxious to get in on this one. it is the violation of federal law. you may not disseminate that information to anybody. >> confidential tax information, tax-exempt applications, there donor list and we heard from events over the last six months or so when the scandal broke that maybe there was some information sharing, now we have do
for a mistake. white house press secretary jay carney today admitted obamacare will cause some americans to lose their current health care insurance. much more to come. i am lou dobbs. ♪ lou: good evening, everybody. the obama administration finally admitting that the president was wrong to claim that americans could keep their health care insurance if they so as to define obamacare. there admission comes as the white house is faced with
's credibility on the issue has taken a hit. jay carney says over time they hope to change the narrative because as more people get the benefits and see the positives, the think it's going to turn around. >> ed, administration officials insist 5% of americans will be in the middle of this. but the president promised all of us. 5% is a lot of millions of people, and republicans say they think it's higher. >> that's right. 5% basically, 14-15 million people. so that's negligent. -- significant. and the republicans quoting a story, if you go back to the federal register in june of 20 10. officials posted comments about the new law which had just been signed into law, that suggested it would not just be a hit to individual insurance plans but disruption of employer, based health plans and we may see people being dropped there. so that would change the narrative again negatively for the administration, because it would be a bigger personal of people, it would include people who have insurance through their employer, which the white house says you'll be fine if you're in that category. this report fro
person signed up. jay carney had an answer though. listen to his explanation for these numbers. watch. >> what you have learned from selected cherry picked leaks from republican committee is that there are notes out there from a contractor that make estimates about figures related to enrollees in the early days of this process. the web site wasn't functioning very well on october 1st or october 2nd. in fact, it hasn't been functioning well in the first month since the launch. if the implication from this disclosure is that the web site wasn't working effectively on october 1st. i think that is a dog bites man story. we know that. and when we have fully compiled data about enrollment in the middle of this month for october. we're going to release it. >> how long does it take to get data from a web site. can i look up any web site. >> it has to work, first. >> you can find out who is on the site instantly. they claim they don't have these numbers. they are mad that the numbers that they don't have leaked. >> sometimes i feel sorry for jay carney sometimes i just look you are in a no-win
know, what's the point? jay carney today was, frankly, apologetic. they said they're going to go ahead and make some changes. let me play just as jay described it. >> we recognize that there need to be additional constraints on how we gather and use intelligence. >> so does he have a point? that there should be additional constraints? or is that basically unilaterally disarming as someone told me today, that the u.s., if it backs down now and stops doing this monitoring, it would be very damaging possibly for the security of the u.s. as well as its allies? >> what he said was the diplomatic correct thing to say. the executive branch is in charge of this. they know what they've got to look at in order to keep america safe. this is not a partisan issue. this is a bipartisan issue. we all agree that we've got to do the kind of intelligence gathering that we do in order to keep americans safe. >> so you don't think they're going to back off unnecessarily. they're going to say the right thing, but they're going to do what they need to do. >> the other side would say the same thing under the
there was a protest. jay carney the president and susan rice claimed there was no evidence of an al qaeda connection, it was not preplanned it was a protest spawned by hateful video that went bad. my belief the fbi interviews two days after should be released to the congress so we can see if whether or not there was evidence that there was never a protest. >> is there another way to do th this? janet yellen leading the federal reserve arguably one of the most important positions leading in washington in the coming years ahead. >> absolutely, yes. >> is it fair to hold up one part of government in order to make a point on another? >> is it fair to tell the congress when you have a national security failure like this, we will not make available to you the people who survived the attack so you can make an independent inquiry, is it fair to withhold from the congress a separate branch of the government with oversight responsibilities, the basic evidence about what happened. i don't like holding up people, that's not in my nature. i've run out of ideas and i am not going to let this whole chapter close w
told the germans he didn't know about this. what jay carney said is we are not doing it now, we will not do it in the future. >> it started under president bush but continued under president obama. >> he said he would change things. there is more continuity from president bush to president obama on a lot of security issues than people would have imagined. there is a lot of blow back with the president with his allies. >> george, is it fair to say the rules are changing on spying on our friends, at least? >> a new technology has given government new power. what we know about government is they use the powers they get. i'm more sympathetic to angela merkel than i think brit is. i think to understand it, you have to understand she was born in 1954 in east germany. she grew up in a surveillance state administered by the secret police. you want to understand that, go to a movie. go to see "the lives of others" 2006, won an academy award. the best foreign language films. >> i have seen it. pretty scary. >> so evidently did mr. snowden who reportedly was influenced by this. so did bill
theresa, some are jumping on a statement by white house press secretary jay carney today as alleged proof that the president is seizing health care from honest americans. take a listen to this. >> there are going to be changes brought about by the affordable care act to create minimum standards. maternity care is covered, prevent active services are comfort, mental health services are covered. the insurance policy you buy doesn't have an annual limit or lifetime limit. so it's true that there are existing health care plans on the individual market that don't meet those minimum standards, and therefore, do not qualify for the affordable care act. >> so people won't be able to be ripped off by substandard plans. what a pit. but is this the line of -- is this line of attack proof that the website will be fixed and republicans then will really have to move on? >> not only do they realize that. let's take a step back and see who they put ahead now to fix this -- the computer glitch. it's jeff zients. jeff zients headed up the advisory board, a health care company that pulled together best prac
not provide enough time for testing? >> kristen we are focused not on monday morning quarterbacking. >> jay carney has perhaps the toughest job in the u.s.a.
-election chances. moments ago, white house pretty secretary jay carney denied that claim. good morning america will have much more on the double down books which comes out next week. but the show, good morning america, is coming up at 7:00. >>> a fresno area woman is suing mcdonald's after suffering burns from hot coffee that spilled in ler lap while she was going through the drive through. a jury award stella lyback nearly $3 billion for her burns 20 years ago. back then, mcdonald's kept its coffee between 108 and 190 degrees. franchises now keep their coffee about ten degrees cooler, but it's still as much as 30 degrees cooler than the coffee you make at home. 70-year-old joan fino wants to change that. >> i went in to get coffee and, you know, it's their fault. it was too hot and the lids weren't on right. >> her attorney admits she didn't suffer million dollar injuries, but they're suing for millions, anyway, claiming mcdonald's is still putting profits over people's safety. mcdonald's has not commented on the soup. >> when i buy a coffee, i have to stick it in the microwave or heat it up
keeping their insurance. nicole wallace laid into spokesman jay carney over it. i want to play a small portion. >> the public believes your boss, and you know as well as i do when the public stops believing your boss, he is rendered impotent. so how do you make the public believe your boss when the two things that were said to reassure people, that they could cope their health plans and they could keep their doctors, turn out to be not true? >> so, governor, ezra klein puts this in perspective for us, a fascinating blame game with the problems. you can see where the arrows are pointing. so is the test of the gop and the sabotage and blame game going to be born out for democrats come 2014? >> well, that depends. i think right now the odds are with the democrats. i think the republicans have essentially eliminated their brand as a serious contention in american politics. not to say they're going to go away, they're not. but nobody believes anything they say. the problem is we've got to deliver this. it has entirely to do with democrats. the republicans are irrelevant to this debate. they
to be lowering expectation. here's press secretary jay carney yesterday before the dismal numbers came out. >> if you're asking me will enrollment be low, the answer is, yes, because that was always going to be the case. martha: live from the white house with more on this, ed henry. it doesn't sound like the administration is on track to enroll its goal of seven million americans in obamacare this year, certainly. >> reporter: right. and what they're trying to do now, martha, is manage expectations. that's what jay carney was doing there. they're trying to compare it to mitt romney's situation oh so many years ago. in the early days people shopped around, talked to their spouse, and then they make a decision closer to january 1st. we'll see how all that pans out. but as you say, these early numbers are embarrassing. it's nothing short of embarrassing for the administration. day one, six people enrolled. and as you say, this is from the administration's own internal notes at the health and human services department. it was released by a republican critic, darrell issa, but he's getting info
for these cancellationss and the white house reportedly is saying shot up. jay carney says that is preposterous but that report is out there. what do you say? judge napolitano: the white house and the president should not have the power to punish them if they don't shut up, but they do have the power because the affordable health care act has given the president such wiggle room, such play in the joints, such areas where the government can establish regulations to govern certain areas, he can use that discretion and that power to punish helping jurors that criticize him. that is reprehensible given the first amendment, reprehensible given the american value of individualism. stuart: strong arm the banks into $137 billion worth of settlements never gone to court. judge napolitano: even you have become an individualist. stuart: but the mean even me? thank you very much as always. do you remember the 1985 bears? i actually do. one of the most celebrated nfl teams in history won a super bowl despite a huge rift between the two principal coaches. we have the man who wrote the book on the bears. he i
there is something like this, jay carney starting his white house briefing. we also have plenty of talk on the health-care law. kathleen sebelius is out of town on the day lawmakers have released a report showing incredibly for early enrollment figures and a few minutes ago a federal court upheld the challenge to the obamacare provision requiring employers sponsored plans provide birth control. the justices find we must determine whether the contraceptive mandate imposed, traveled the right of free exercise, a right the lies at the core of our constitutional liberties is protected by the freedom restoration act. we conclude it does. there are cases challenging that mandate and legal watchers ex will decide that issue. republicans on the house oversight and government reform committee say they have secured the totals from day 1 of obamacare's on my exchange, total of 6 enrollees on the first day and the administration meeting those released by the committee say ongoing issues, high capacity on the web site, direct enrollment not working, experienced creating conclusion with credit check information, f
spokesman jay carney said today. >> the history of mistrust between the united states and the islamic republic of iran is deep. it will not be erased overnight. what we are doing now is not truth. we are in serious substantive negotiations that have the possibility of stopping the advance of iran's nuclear program f. and gesht a long-term comprehensive solution. i've been to more demonstrations in iran than i can count. they're a good part theater as well as public opposition. i've been to them where people are small, laughing when they're taking part. that said, there is real optimism and skepticism. that's something that people like the president are very aware. they have to show results very quickly, much the way politicians here, the administration has to show results as well. they have to so the iranians willing to put real restrictions on the nuclear program. as that is happening, politicians in iran have to be aware of the public opposition, and you'll have some playing up. the white house was saying, hey, we're not paying attention to that, but the talks that are taking player
administration try to get beyond this? >> you see they're push back very strongly in these daily briefings. jay carney has reporters challenging things that we're reporting that of course is out there. the president went on the road this week to try to defend it. it's been a very sharp defense. >> and they're getting help from people like oracle. >> they brought in these tech experts. yesterday they said there was somebody from google coming in to try to turn this thing around. again, the problem is the intro introduction for most americans to the affordable care act has not been a good one. they have to change if this is going to work. >> jan, as you pointed out, the president promised if you like your insurance, you can keep your insurance. that's not true for those who get individual coverage. there's small portions but 3 million -- >> we think the number is going to be more like 10 million or 15 million. >> what about the promise that president obama says if you like your dock, to you can keep your doctor. >> it's not just a broken website. people are finding out a

, the white house yesterday, jay carney effectively said yes there are some plans that don't meet the minimum standard of the affordable care act. that is, in fact, true. they would say though our plan allows you to get benefits. yes maybe your premium goes up, your deductible goes up but you have more benefits including for mental health. what did the white house tell you >> they basically made the same point. they said look anyone who is losing their insurance is losing their insurance because it doesn't meet our standards. and that this new policy will give people more protection, they can't be dropped because they get sick, they by and large will have a richer package of benefits. the problem is a lot of the folks we talked to who have received these notices first were shocked that they got them because they thought the president had told them they wouldn't but also they didn't like the government telling them what they had to buy. and they in some cases were very happy with the more bear bones policy that they thought met their needs, and cost them less. now there was one individual who

briefings. jay carney is having with reporters challenging things that we're reporting, that of course, is out there. the president went on the road this week to try to defend it. a very sharp defense. >> help from people like oracle and some of the top companies. >> they brought in tech experts yesterday. they said somebody from google coming in. but again, the problem is the introduction for most americans to the affordable care act has not been a good one. and that is impressions have to change if this law is going to work. >> you pointed ot out the president promised if you like your insurance, you can keep your insurance. that's not true for those who get individual coverage. they're a small portion, but they're still about 3 million people. >> that we know so far. we think that number will be more like 10 or 15 million. >> what about the promise that the president has made that if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor. >> this is all again, it's not a broken website. that's not the only problem. americans are finding out about the affordable care
that the president never considered releasing him. the question was placed the jay carney yesterday. here is his response. [video clip] replacing hillary clinton for joe biden. >> it is important to know that campaigns and posters test a lot of things. what i can tell you without a doubt is that the president never considered that and, had anyone brought that idea to him, he would have left it out of the room. that former chief of staff bill daley said as much this morning. and here's why. joe biden has been an asset to this president into campaigns and throughout five years of this administration. whether it was handling the implementation of the recovery, handling the very sensitive and important portfolio of iraq in the first term or his key role in working with congress on some important negotiations, joe biden has been an excellent partner in the president's view. and then, as a candidate, i think, if you look at the role he played in 2012 when you look debate,ob he did in his i think there is little doubt that he was an enormous asset to the entire cause and enterprise. that is how the pre

consideration? >> yes. >> david, white house spokesman jay carney asked yesterday if president obama knew about any potential v.p. swaps, listen to this -- >> you're saying he was aware of this or was not -- >> i think if you ask the people who were more directly running the campaign that question, they might have an answer. i'm not aware that he was aware of it. >> in those conversations about kicking biden off the ticket here, is it possible the president may not have been aware of those discussions happening around him? >> i think chris is right in what she said. i covered the campaign. there were moments where the president seemed to have losst some of the momentum he had four years ago. hillary clinton was riding high in the polls as secretary of state. there was public talk among pundits and so on. i'm sure the campaign were thinking about every potential option. whether it reached the level of president obama or was serious, it looks unlikely. david plouffe is adamant about that. i think this is a lot of talk. biden's role in this white house has been periodically questioned about how se
